Egypt's police and military stormed a pair of Muslim Brotherhood protest sites, leaving several protesters dead and dozens wounded as violence threatened to spill across the city. The storming of the protest sites, at the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in Nasr City and another one in Nahda square, had been anticipated for more than a week, but came as a surprise when it began at 7am local time.
